Example text

The recent work of Michel Foucault allows one to understand both the psychoanalytic inheritance and the politics of Anti-Oedipus in another way. He proposes to examine knowledge-in this case psychoanalytic knowl­ edge-in terms of power, not of the powers which it may serve, but the mechanisms of power to which it is indissoluably linked. This requires a concept of power which is not reducible to alienation, exclusion, interdiction or repression, but which has a formative function with respect�in this case-to the theoretical entities recognized by psychiatric knowledge, and which cuts across institutional and class boundaries.

Cannot be stated in other terms.

But the problem is basically one of the function of the knowledge they propose to offer.

Repression consists, for BaudriUard, in the absolute separation between veritable desire and social life, in the conversion of the one into the other by means of a trick which Freud termed sublimation and which Baudrillard describes as the substitution of the logic of equivalence (the level of capitalist merchandise) for the logic of ambivalence (the logic of desire and of the symbolic exchange).
